Bulgarian Folk Musicians

Short term: 2017-18

While teaching English in Sofia, Bulgaria on a Fulbright fellowship, I traveled across Bulgaria to visually document Bulgarian folk musicians. The focus of this project is to approach Bulgarian folk music with emphasis on the musicians themselves rather than musical analysis. With a dense musical background, I am interested in the strong affinities which musicians behold that tie them to their art.

These photos represent musicians of various Bulgarian folkloric traditions, from different regions of the country.
